CRAG Gallery is pleased to present the works of the two young artists, Laura Omacini and Oscar Rojas Contreras, with a double inauguration, in the solo exhibitions to be held from 8 October to 22 November 2020.
The two exhibitions, organised respectively in in via Giolitti 51 and in the Home Gallery in via Maria Vittoria 45 in Turin, are the most recent proposal of the research that CRAG has been doing for four years on young Italian painting. In this case, there will be on display about thirty works by the two painters who both trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. It is interesting to note how the vision of the landscape is different for the two artists: Laura Omacini is focused on an intimate representation, she tells us about the reality that surrounds her and leads us to distant horizons, almost to meditation. Oscar Rojas Contreras detaches himself from the horizon to abandon himself in an often celestial dimension.
Laura Omacini’s exhibition (Venice, 1991) entitled “DE LIMITE”, focuses on marine settings that confront the idea of limits. In his landscapes, the artist describes a sea that takes shape through the creation of multiple pictorial layers and experimental figurative weaves. Not only spatial but also temporal relationships arise. Geometric details and technical expedients emerge that allow us, quoting the text of his teacher Yoann Van Parys, to separate and distance ourselves from this same time that identifies us as men, how we could rise above it in order to finally be able to observe it and to enjoy it finally the inherent serenity.
